Speaking to NME for her third Big Read cover story, Billie said: “I owe it to everyone to put on a good Glastonbury headline set. It’s heart-warming to see how much people care about it and think that this is going to be the best weekend of their lives.”

She added: “I’m really crossing my fingers that it’s a good vibe out there. I’m hoping that the crowd is ready to have as much fun as I am ready to have, and not just be there to watch – I need energy coming back from the crowd to bounce off”.

Elsewhere in the interview, she discusses overcoming the fear that she would never produce a headline-worthy show, and the expectation female artists have for their sets.

“It’s so cool to be a young woman and headline festivals, because it’s so male-dominated,” she said. “I went through a rough patch in 2017 and 2018, feeling hopeless about the future of women in music. I would see these line-ups for festivals and it was all dudes. And it was all artists I liked, but it was just like, ‘When will women be involved?’”
